As soon as I saw "Sally's Great Balloon Adventure" I knew it would be a storytime winner. Sally, a black Lab, climbs into the gondola of a hot-air balloon in pursuit of the enticing smell of fried chicken. Soon the balloon is aloft. Spectacular woodcuts illustrate Sally's reactions to her flight and the ongoing efforts to rescue her. A suspenseful plot, humor and striking artwork make "Sally's Great Balloon Adventure" a standout picture book.
